Making the Most of It!

Got up, looked on the weather forecast and saw that it said "high of 88 today". 88??!!?? Got on the phone to my non-acquaintance Keri, who just woke up...."Want to go to the zoo today?"....."Sure!" she replied, always willing for an adventure. A few more calls and by 11:00 a.m., 4 mommies, 2 babies, 4 toddlers, 1 kid, and 2 pre-teens are loaded into 2 suburbans with lunches packed, ready to spend the day in Tyler.

Gold medal for the Olympian mommies!! World record time!

We had a blast at the zoo and quickly realized that the 88 degrees turned into the 90's, but it was still overcast and a great day for an outing. Whether it was looking at the "Cheetos" ....or being asked incredulously by two teenagers, "Are all of these ya'lls kids???" it's always fun to share a day with friends. I thank the Lord for friendships made.....friendships sustained.....and friends who are willing to be flexible and fun! Thanks ladies!

Lunch time!

Whether it's a trip to the zoo or just hanging out at someone's house together, I mostly enjoy just being with such good friends. Thanks for a great day!
